North Carolina Giant Furniture Tour

Of the several things North Carolina is famous for one of them is furniture production.  One would think that this industry provides nothing to the tourist, but they would be wrong.

Somehow North Carolinians turned something as boring as furniture into something fun and exciting to tourists.  How do you make something fun and exciting.  You make it ridiculously big.

Check out the World's Largest High Boy Chest in High Point, NC.

Also in High Point we have the World's Largest Chest of Drawers

It was undergoing some repairs while I was there, there is actually a pair of socks hanging out behind that orange tarp.  As you can also see from the signs at the bottom, the chest of drawers is for sale.  There is actually a hidden door in the back.  The whole thing is actually a windowless building.

Finally over in Thomasville right in the middle of Main St, we have the World's Largest Duncan Phyfe Chair.  Its kind of a specific title, but its cool none the less.  Sadly, the chair is to big to sit in.
